Hey fellow readers,

here another great book to read;)

We will meet inside the cafe and discuss the book.

See ya,

The Master and Margarita:

The novel's vision of Soviet life in the Protected content is so ferociously accurate that it could not be published during its author's lifetime and appeared only in a censored edition in the Protected content . Its truths are so enduring that its language has become part of the common Russian speech.

One hot spring, the devil arrives in Moscow, accompanied by a retinue that includes a beautiful naked witch and an immense talking black cat with a fondness for chess and vodka. The visitors quickly wreak havoc in a city that refuses to believe in either God or Satan. But they also bring peace to two unhappy Muscovites: one is the Master, a writer pilloried for daring to write a novel about Christ and Pontius Pilate; the other is Margarita, who loves the Master so deeply that she is willing literally to go to hell for him. What ensues is a novel of inexhaustible energy, humor, and philosophical depth
